Munro + Whitten and SGP Architects developed the masterplan for a new settlement of 1200 houses with district centre, employment zones and extensive green infrastructure. Design of the public open space includes countryside parks, sports pitches, greenways and play areas; was an integral component of the proposals. New habitats were created including: woodland, meadows, lakes and ponds. An extensive path and cycleway network joining neighbourhoods and linking them to the school, shops and community hall in the district centre.

Munro + Whitten were responsible for the administration of the £2 million landscape contract over a 6 year period with maintenance leading to handover of the Public Open Space to the district council.
